RUFC - Millers beat off good clubs to get striker

Rotherham United Manager, Steve Evans was delighted after it was announced that his second signing for the Millers was Kayode Odejayi from Colchester this afternoon.

Speaking to the Official Site after the striker put pen to paper, the Millers boss said, 'I am delighted with this signing and I have to say we have beaten a number of good clubs to get him here. With the fantastic New York Stadium and the big support we have here I always believed we stood a chance, and I never gave up.'

Asked what the 6' 3'' player would bring to the Millers, Evans said, 'He is a real handful for any defence and he has been in outstanding form. He is powerful, quick and outstanding in the air and, at times, the lad single handily produced performances that kept Colchester United in the League One promotion race. I know John Ward, the manager there, and I know how highly he rates the lad, so he will be very sorry to see him leave. 'I spoke with two managers in League One whose team faced Kayode last season. Both of those gentlemen told me it would be in there opinions a fantastic signing as he caused those teams all sorts of problems. He was voted the Supporters' Player of the Year at Colchester and I watched him several times last season and he was excellent every time.

'He is another part of the squad we are working hard to assemble this summer that will in turn see us really challenge for a place in League One. Players with his style and of this quality are hard to get but we will try our best to convince these lads to join us and become part of something really special.'
